Erika Costell has a tattoo of the word “Loyalty” on her right hip. She showed off the tattoo in a May 2018 video where she visited Romeo Lacoste’s shop The California Dream Tattoo with her boyfriend/husband Jake Paul. He talked about getting a Loyalty tattoo to match hers, which she already had, but ended up getting a huge sword on his back with the words “To Live & Die.”
The word “Loyalty” was Danielle Bregoli’s very first tattoo so we know that loyalty is something that means a lot to her. That tattoo, which she got at only 12 years old, was handwritten on her foot and looked rather sloppy and childish. So she decided to get it covered up with a nicer looking design.
She replaced it with a new “Loyalty” tattoo on her right forearm as part of a major tattoo session in August 2018. This time she had the word written in a clean script font with a butterfly next to it.
In addition to serving as a reminder of her own loyalties, it’s also a tribute to XXXTentacion who had the word “Loyalty” tattooed on his chin. Danielle was devastated by his June 2018 murder and has since gotten multiple tattoos dedicated to the fellow rapper, who was a friend of hers.
Lucy Hale and her older sister Maggie got matching tattoos in memory of their late grandmother. The sisters both inked “I love you” on their right forearm in their grandmother’s own handwriting. Lucy showed off the matching tatts on her instagram and wrote:
Nothing says sisterly bonding more than permanently tattooing your body. After years of wanting our grandmothers writing, we did it! Our Grammy was our favorite person & now she’s even more a part of us. Also, my sister is a badass who raises two kids, teaches combat classes AND goes on tattoo runs with her baby sister. Also, ouch. This one hurt.
Lucy’s grandmother is still a major part of her life even after she passed away. She attempted to connect with her grandma on an episode of E!’s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry and said:
I definitely felt like I was with her today, but then again I always feel close to her…I definitely always feel her presence.
Me and my sister talk about it all the time that we wish she could be here to see what I’ve done. I don’t think many people thought in my family that [my career] would be what it is, but I always think that she did.
This tattoo, which they got in July 2018, is actually the second tattoo that Lucy and her sister got together to honor their grandmother. She already had a sun on her upper back.
Kelsea Ballerini has a tattoo on her left forearm with the line “how sweet the sound” from the song “Amazing Grace.” It’s special to her because it was the first solo that she ever sang in her church choir. Singing was always a big part of her life, but she never thought that she wanted to make it a career until she discovered her passion for songwriting at age 13. She told CMT:
“I grew up loving music, like, loving it. I was involved in church choir, leading worship and all the choirs in my school — even glee club. I always loved performing and music.”
She got the tattoo in June 2014 and posted a picture on instagram captioning it:
“First song I learned, first solo I sang, and now first tattoo. #amazinggrace”
Demi Lovato got the word “free” in script inked on the side of her pinkie in June 2018. She shared the new tattoo on her instagram story after opening up about her recent relapse six years into sobriety and releasing a new single “Sober” about the experience.
Several members of her team got matching tattoos to show their support. Hairstylist César DeLeön Ramirêz wrote “Everyone deserves to speak their truth! Love is accepting someone for who they are and for who they are not!” Manager Lauren Einbinder, personal assistant Kelsey Kershner, makeup artist Jill Powell, and bodyguard Max Lea were also part of the crew who got inked together in Madrid Spain during the Tell Me You Love Me World Tour.
